Designed to commemorate a century of Peruvian independence, the plaza features nicely presented gardens linking up various monuments with San Martin's central statue. The Baroque look of the surrounding buildings is in keeping with the Neocolonial style of the plaza itself, with grand structures cornering off the public space.

  • One of Lima´s main squares. Lots of services around the square, including Bolivarcito an awesome bar to drink Pisco sour
  • Beautiful, crowded, feel insecure. Worth visit but I didn't feel comfortable for taking pictures.
  • Quite large square park with grass and a few trees, which is rare in Lima; excellent cheap restaurants appreciated by the local population in the streets around.
